    I'm doing a duel experiment today. I make a very spicy tomato dish. I start with sauteing some onions and green peppers.

    The 2011 canning season has begun :) I started today, with strawberries. The strawberries are finally in, despite the cool, wet conditions here. The UPick strawberry farm run by a friend of mine is on high ground, and due to the moisture and a few days of relentless sunshine, the crop is...

    I love my breakfast and the one thing I would miss is sausage. I have canned deer and beef but never tried a pre-cooked meat. Has anybody taken a link type sausage like Hormel brown & serve links and canned them?
